All in a day’s work !


By T S Sudhir

Here is the tale of a superfast judge who handed out a judgement every few minutes this Friday. He settled 260 cases, all in a day’s work. Even convicted 13 accused and imposed a fine of 73000 rupees.

If law minister Veerappa Moily is looking for inspiration for putting the judiciary on fast track, he just needs to look to this court in Venkatagiri town in Nellore district. Judge Yesuratnam has come as a welcome relief not only to petitioners, but as the policeman in the story points out, even to the accused and witnesses.
